The book in the form of a semi-album consists of two complementary parts. The first one is an erudite and gripping dissertation of both authors „Jewish old prints in the Republic of Poland and Europe”, the second one is a presentation of old prints from the years 1547–1796. The book also includes and introductory essay by Eleonora Bergman about libraries in Tłomackie: in the late 1930s, during the occupation (export of the collections to Berlin, destruction of the building), after the war (recovering the collections) and also about owned old prints.
